ATTENTION! New Office Suite Check-In Process

Beginning Fall 2013, all students accessing the CalWORKS, EOPS/CARE, Scholarship, and WorkAbility III offices will be required to check-in with their student ID at the check-in station. This allows for the programs to keep better track of the students accessing the services and maintain the privacy of other students. Tracking visitors in our offices will provide us with much needed information regarding the needs of our students which can impact the services we provide and staffing needs.

We ask that all of our students cooperate as we work through this new process. Thank you.



CalWORKs is designed to provide comprehensive and coordinated student services to individuals who receive cash assistance from the Employment and Human Services Department and are enrolled at Diablo Valley College. 

The CalWORKs Program strives to empower each participant in attaining personal and academic growth, meaningful employment, and long-term economic stability. The program is designed to help CalWORKs students complete the academic and career training they need to successfully move from welfare to work and to become economically self-sufficient. The program provides coordinated services for child-care, work-study, job development/job placement assistance, and personal and professional development. The CalWORKs Office works with students to make sure they are meeting welfare-to-work requirements established by the County Department of Social Services and ensure that they access all available resources to optimize academic success. 

The staff members of the CalWORKs Program are committed to creating an environment which promotes:

  • A spirit of truth and mutual understanding and respect
  • Education and training that leads to family self-sufficiency
  • Student empowerment and advocacy
  • Student success
  • Development of the whole person
  • Development and achievement of individual goals
  • Lifelong learning
